Hit-and-Run America, Vol. DCCCLXXXVI

An ongoing collection of unsolved hit-and-run cases, with a focus on car/pedestrian incidents, from across the country since Jan. ‘010. If you know something about any of these incidents, or one that I’ve missed, do the right thing and call the police, even anonymously. After a respite from keeping the list, it restarted in January 2019, highlighting one case a day. If there’s a case you’ve seen that deserves highlighting, drop me a line at hickey@brianphickey.com.

12475. The Florence Police Department released new surveillance pictures of the vehicle they believe was involved in a deadly hit-and-run over the weekend. … That’s where officers found the body of 26-year-old Kentrey White-Long. Investigators believe the White-Long was hit on Church Street after the first crash and was then “dragged or carried” where they were eventually found.

12476. “We had a report earlier this morning that her son had called in saying that his mother wasn’t home and she may have wandered off between three and 6 in the morning,” said Gwinnett County Police Officer Hideshi Valle.


12478. Officers were dispatched to the scene around 10 p.m. to investigate a possible crash. When they arrived, they found a man dead in the road who had apparently been struck by a vehicle. Officers were able to locate the suspect vehicle, but the driver had fled the scene.

12479. Police say an investigation is underway after a juvenile pedestrian was hit by a fleeing vehicle earlier this week in Bucks County. A girl was crossing the street when she was reportedly struck by a black Subaru that did not stop. She suffered minor injuries.

12480. Amber Joulbert, 21, was hit by an unknown vehicle around 2 a.m. at 428 McAlpin Ave., according to Cincinnati Lt. Col. Teresa Theetge. Police received a 911 call that a woman, about 20 years old, was laying in the street. Joulbert was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center to be treated for life-threatening injuries, Theetge said.
